Summertime is all about adventure, it’s about creating memories and enjoying yourself. Spending a lot of time outside is essential for summer, especially us Canadians. Between work and winter, there isn’t an abundant amount of time to be enjoying our outdoors; well, unless you’re a winter person. Our family here at Amego, have been going on adventures all summer long. Bruce, our general manager, just came back from his cottage. Bruce's trip down to his cottage was different than his trips earlier this summer, this time, he decided to take one of our Bionx E-Bikes to ride down on.
Our Sales Rep and Electric Technician, Matt Locke, went to Texas for one of the largest festivals around. Guess how he got around, with an E-Bike. We all know what it feels like to go to a city that we are unfamiliar with and how confusing it can be to jump on their public transport. Matt decided to skip this phase of the trip, instead, he powered up Google Maps and jumped on his E-Bike.
When it comes to sightseeing, one of our E-Bike family members, Dave, has all of our employees beat.
We want to hear from you!!! What trips have you taken this summer with an E-Bike? Big or small, we would love to hear about it. Picnics? Night time rides? A ride down Lakeshore? Every time you share a photo/video of your E-Bike adventure on our Twitter or Facebook, you will be entered into a draw to win a free helmet and lock.
At Amego, we celebrate adventure. We want you to get outside and do something fun this summer. To help out, we created a list of free events that are going on in August.

Open Streets TO
If there was ever a time to explore your community, this is the day. Open Streets TO closes streets to traffic and opens them up for everyone to enjoy. The city closes down selected streets to allow pedestrians to bike, walk, run, or jog, with multiple activity spots and pop-ups along the way, you should be able to get a full day on your bike.
